Women have been a majority of voters in every national election since 1964. Despite this, the United States still ranks 77th in the world for women’s political representation. Now, three women behind some of today’s most powerful political organizations–Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood; Alicia Garza, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network; and Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance–have come together to found Supermajority, a community for people of all backgrounds, races, and ages who want to fight to make sure everyone is treated equally, no matter their gender. Richards, Garza, and Poo will join the Chicago Sun-Times’s Laura Washington to discuss their motivation in creating Supermajority, and lay out their plan for creating gender equity.

This annual lecture is supported by the Doris Conant Endowment for Programs on Women and Culture with additional support provide by the Lohengrin Foundation, and is presented in partnership with the Chicago Foundation for Women and the Chicago Reader.
